Thanks Peter. I'll see if I can find one on t'internet.
Married life is excellent; coming up for our 2nd anniversary soon. God, doesn't time fly.
Know what you mean about chinese celebrations. Mid-Autums is another excuse for excess with lots rice wine, really loud fireworks and miniature hot air balloons that have a habit of catching fire and landing like incendiary shells on some poor sods roof.
Thanks also for the info on Fairy. When you say 'white spirit' do you means turps and will tupentine substitute be OK ?? Meths and surgical alcohol are not freely available here due to their alcohol content !!!
Don't worry, I have no intention of throwing away my collection of over 100 Humbrol paints. I bought them specifically for brush painting smaller (N Scale) line-side models, vehicles and people.
Keep up the good work and thanks again for a fascinating thread.
